STF 1 [NASA]
STF 1 (Simulation to Flight 1) is a nanosatellite developed by NASA's Independent Validation and Verification (IV&V) Program in colaboration with West Virginia Space Grant Consortium (WVSGC) and West Virginia University (WVU) to demonstrate the utility of the NASA Operational Simulator (NOS) technologies across the CubeSat development cycle, from concept planning to mission operations.
The 3U Cubesat mission will demonstrate a highly portable simulation and test platform that allows seamless transition of mission development artifacts to flight products. This environment will be highly portable and will decrease the development time of future CubeSat missions by lessening the dependency on hardware resources.
The payload consists of:
It will perform following science and technology demonstrations:
It was selected in 2015 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program. It was launched on the ELaNa-19 mission.
